Paris: Atos this week unveiled the fourth edition of its independent trends report Ascent Look Out 2012+.
The report brings together insights of over 200 contributors from various parts of the world, business lines and industries across Atos and provides analysis of the emerging trends, business needs and technologies that will be driving innovation in the years ahead.
The new edition focuses on clients in five market sectors: Manufacturing & Retail, Public Sector, Healthcare & Transport; Financial Services; Telecoms, Media & Technology and Energy & Utilities.
Next wave of disruptive technologies and innovative business processes
Atos says the coming together of traditional enterprise collaboration tools, content management and social networking will create the next wave of disruptive technologies and innovative business processes and ultimately change the way that enterprises collaborate. It may even lead to the formation of highly connected and borderless enterprises in the longer term. Atos sees early adopters who gain competitive advantage from the many potential opportunities that the Social Organization has to offer, like its own zero email initiative.
Gilles Grapinet, Senior Executive Vice President Global Functions at Atos said, "The technology and business landscape has been changing at an unprecedented speed and, as one of the world's leading IT companies, we have the responsibility to think one step ahead and anticipate coming business and technology challenges for our clients. We are proud to issue for the fourth edition of our in-depth trends report that is embraced by our customers worldwide. Ascent Look Out aims to raise awareness of the emerging trends, business needs and technologies that will drive innovation and we believe that early adopters of social organization tools will gain competitive advantage in an economy where IT pervasiveness accelerates".
